Lynne Spears: ‘Differing Reactions To Jamie-Lynn And Bristol Palin’s Pregnancies Hypocritical’

Lynne Spears: 'Differing Reactions To Jamie-Lynn And Bristol Palin's Pregnancies Hypocritical'

Jamie-Lynn Spears got pregnant when she was 16, and 17-year-old Bristol Palin is pregnant now. But according to Jamie-Lynne’s mom, Lynn Spears, the difference in the public reaction to the two girls’ pregnancies couldn’t be more different.

It’s a totally different reaction. It’s as if [Sarah Palin] became celebrated. I mean, the mother, Palin, was celebrated for this. Every woman in the world has applauded her strength and her convictions and poor little old Jamie Lynn—you saw how she was crucified. Everybody did, firsthand … I just feel like it’s been a very hypocritical situation.

What do you think – is the difference in reaction to the girls’ pregnancy news hypocritical? Or do you think there were other factors that contributed to the public’s reactions?

Jaymes Foster Says Clay Is “An Incredible Caregiver”

Clay Aiken’s best friend, 50-year-old music producer Jaymes Foster, is the mother of their 7-week-old son Parker. Jaymes chatted with People during the magazine’s photo shoot at Aiken’s home in North Carolina, where she is currently staying. Jaymes opened up about her pregnancy, being an older mom, and who’s better at changing diapers.

On what makes Clay a great dad: “He’s an incredible caregiver. As far as changing the diapers and seeing what’s wrong with [Parker] and getting him to go sleep, Clay’s a natural and he’s really, really good with that. On a larger scale, he’s the perfect person. He’s been a school teacher, we have the same morals, family is very important to him and Parker means everything to us.”

On how she feels about having a baby at 50: “I really think I was not ready to have children – well, I know I was not ready to have children, be a mother – in my 20s or 30s. I had the freedom then to travel the world and have a wonderful career. I believe at this point in my life it’s the right time, and I think because it’s the right time, I’ll hopefully do a good job. If I don’t, Clay will be all over me!”

On her pregnancy: “I thought I’d be one of the lucky ones that didn’t get the nausea, that I’d sail right through the pregnancy. But unfortunately I had it the whole time! I dealt with it on my own until I found out that there is a great new medication that helps eliminate the nausea, which I took the entire pregnancy. But other than that, it was really a breeze.”

On supporting Clay’s decision to come out: “I totally support him. It’s his choice. It’s a choice that he made. I love him and I’ll support him in any choice that he makes, whether as an entertainer, or a father, human being, of course I support him.”

On any baby-related chores that either of them shy away from: “It’s funny because we were both very relaxed from the minute he was born. But the one thing I’m a little nervous about is clipping his hand nails because I think I might cut him, so Clay definitely has a handle on that and takes care of that. [Parker] doesn’t like baths so much, so I tend to do the bathing because he kind of cries through that so I’ve taken that on as a job. Clay would be happy to do that, but I just figure, okay, if he does the nails, I’ll do the bath.”

On if her relationship with Clay has changed since Parker’s birth: “We love each other dearly and deeply as friends, but I think as parents now, there’s an even greater bond, certainly for me. Our job is to remain best friends for the rest of our lives and that’s the most important thing for Parker.”

Giada De Laurentiis In Page Six Magazine

Giada De Laurentiis In Page Six Magazine

Giada de Laurentiis, the celebrity chef on Food Network’s Everyday Italian and author of two New York Times best-selling cookbooks, is on the cover of this week’s Page Six Magazine. The 38-year-old new mom talks about welcoming marriage and a child into her life, her sex appeal and her future projects.

Giada is married to Todd Thompson, a fashion designer for Anthropologie. The couple welcomed their first child, Jade Marie De Laurentiis Thompson, on March 29, 2008. Giada said she wasn’t sure she’d ever get married or have children,

“I never cared about marriage. I was more worried about working, and really didn’t think I’d have kids. Then Todd turned 40 and I guess he thought to himself, ‘I think I’d like to marry Giada.’”

Giada hopes to instill an appreciation for her home country (she was born in Rome) in her daughter. Giada sings Jade the Italian lullabies that were once sang to her as a child. Her husband has his own family traditions to pass down to Jade,

“He will always tell the story of how his grandmother would take him to McDonald’s and Burger King. And he says, ‘I can’t wait to take Jade.’”

Giada admits she dresses somewhat sexy on her show, but denies an intentional seductive approach,

“Porn? I’m not doing porn! What the hell are people talking about? [It's not] PBS-style cooking. I mean, I love Lidia [Bastianich], but [she's] kind of boring. And Mario Batali [I] love to death…but he’s not romantic or sensual. Those are the things I bring to the table.”

Giada’s popular show, Everyday Italian, is now on a break but the celebrity chef has been ‘cooking up’ a plethora of other projects to fill her plate. She is working on a new show, Giada at Home and a fourth cookbook.
